Commenting on the Prime Minister’s announcement that a General Election will be held on July 4, local candidate Stephen Crabb has said he is committed to providing a strong voice for Pembrokeshire.

Stephen Crabb MP, Conservative Candidate for Mid and South Pembrokeshire said:

“As a local man who lives and was raised in the heart of Pembrokeshire, I’m committed to providing a strong voice for our county. I understand the needs of our community and have a trusted track record of speaking up for Pembrokeshire. I bring experience, a record of delivering on our County’s priorities, and I always put the interests of Pembrokeshire first.

“I’ve worked hard to secure the Celtic Freeport which will bring new investment and jobs to the area, improved Broadband, delivered new Levelling Up money to improve our town centres, and boosted the number of police officers to keep our communities safer. Defending Withybush Hospital and local health services against Welsh Labour cuts will always remain a top priority.

“I am the only candidate at this election who has fought against Vaughan Gething’s Withyhedge landfill scandal which has ruined the quality of life of thousands of Pembrokeshire people. This election is an opportunity for local people to send a message to Welsh Labour that Pembrokeshire must not be turned into a dumping ground.

“The new boundaries mean the seat now includes South Pembrokeshire. I've worked with many of the businesses there during my time as a Pembrokeshire MP, and I know the community well. But I am looking forward to speaking to many more people across the new constituency as I get out and about during the campaign.

“I look forward to showing people over the next six weeks why they can trust me with their vote and rely on me to work hard for Pembrokeshire. It’s been an honour and privilege to care and campaign for my home county for the past 19 years – I look forward to continuing this work.”  

“Now is the moment for Britain to choose its future,” Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced on May 22. Voters will go to the polls on Thursday, July 4.
